Mysteries Of The World is the stunning final studio album from legendary Philly supergroup MFSB.
Expertly co-written and produced with the mighty Dexter Wansel, it features the untouchable,
sparkling masterpiece “Mysteries Of The World”. The whole album is truly exquisite; a stylish, classy
collection of pure Philly soul and orchestral jazz-funk.
An essential record for fans of Philly soul and groovy jazz-funk, Mysteries Of The World was
mastered for vinyl by Simon Francis and cut by Cicely Ralston for Alchemy at AIR Studios. The
stunning artwork, the work of renowned illustrator Robert Giusti, was restored at Be With HQ to round
out this beautiful reissue.
MFSB, an acronym for Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, was formed by producers Gamble & Huff of
Philadelphia International Records. The band’s roots can be traced back to the house band at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios, where they played on numerous hit records by artists like The O’Jays, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and The Stylistics. Mysteries Of The World comprises slick jazz-funk grooves, mostly penned by Wansel, who produced a fair chunk of the album in a similar style to his space-funk records. MFSB’s smooth sound is retained but it receives a fresh, elegant and jazzy upgrade. While this album is as mellow as the rest of the latter-period MFSB recordings, it never forgets the group’s soul music underpinnings.
